Default Bumper for tornado pro

Where can you find a front and rear bumper or equivalent...Also is it recommended to use a fuel filter on this car and I have seen different wings available as well,can you please post where to find......This is my first nitro car and it is starting to get fun.......had problem with the tuning in the infinity engine and took it to mu lhs and they tuned for five dollars and it runs like a striped blank....You guys have always been helpful thanks for all the support....

after I toasted my engine after just a gallon maybe more iput mine at bdc all the time..lol....I assume if you leave it up top..as the engine cools the metal starts to shrink...thus if the piston is up top one shrinks faster then the other and wham u loose your pinch..no more compression...and iffin ya dont have a temp gun get one...range is 200 to 260 deg.
